Opening with a look at Kingdom Hearts 3 to remind you it’s in development, Square Enix has released an English version of the Kingdom Hearts HD 2.8 Final Chapter Prologue, featuring a look at the remastered Dream Drop Distance, a tease of the playable episode set after Birth by Sleep, and an idea of what to expect from the Unchained cinematics.
Unlike the Japanese version of the trailer where it says Kingdom Hearts HD 2.8 is releasing in 2016, the North American and European trailers just say it’s “now in development.”
